Ted Baker’s SS14 Prints

The best floral prints for Spring/Summer 2014 I believe goes to Ted Baker. The prints are full of vibrancy and strong design work and processes, especially this electric daydream biker jacket! Having seen the product in person and felt the material, it is a beautifully made garment, consisting of: Fabric Content: Shell: 94% Polyester 6% Elastane; Body lining: 58% Viscose 42% Polyester; Sleeve lining: 95% Polyester 5% Elastane. The fabric quality has a slight soft, silkiness to it but with a strong, structured feel. Not only is the print a unique selling factor of this garment, but combined with the garment jacket structure with its asymmetric zip and curved hemline, it bring Ted Baker’s print products to the top of its market. Ted have launched many products in this print, including trousers, scarves and bags. Image

In addition to their womenswear, Ted Baker is renowned for their quirky, unconventional menswear prints. In particular, this geometric print shirt is a favourite of mine, with the orange which could be combined with tan trousers. The simple small scale print, repeated all over is really effective, yet not too lairy!

Having not long ago visited Paris, I was keen to keep informed on PFW. Chanel’s display incorporated an extremely lavish supermarket layout with chanel-branded products. The clothes themselves were were quite varied, with lots of pastel tones, oversized coats, obviously with the Chanel culture attached to it. It was an extremely innovative catwalk design by Karl Lagerfeld but I can’t help think the it was a hindrance not help to the clothes!
